Accessibility at the Gtech Community Stadium
The stadium offers step-free access across the site and within the stadium itself.
Supporters can enter the stadium via:
- Lionel Road South - from either the North or South, which provides a level, step free, route to all stands
- Over the new bridge from Capital Interchange Way where a lift is available to the exterior of the East stand again providing a level route to all stands
- Vehicle drop off points ,for wheelchair users or those with difficulty walking distances , in Capital Interchange way
The stadium meets, and exceeds in many cases, the latest Safety at Sports Grounds ‘Green Guide’, including:
- 140+ wheelchair bays and helper seats located all around the stadium
- Easy access and accessible seating in various parts of the ground
- Low level counters, hearing loops, accessible toilets and a changing places facility
- A sensory room for juniors to enjoy with their family who may need a quieter environment to watch a match
- A limited supply of accessible parking spaces are provided at ground floor level
Step free access to Kew Bridge Station is available, on match day, via an underpass on the London Bound Carriage Way only i.e. those travelling to or from the ground in a London bound direction, are able to alight and board at Kew Bridge Station
For those travelling out for London to or from the ground the nearest accessible station is Brentford.
We are also looking into whether there is demand for a pre-bookable shuttle service from/to Brentford station for supporters requiring step-free access and Brentford FC are working closely with South Western Railway /National Rail to introduce full step-free access at Kew Bridge station as soon as possible.
